Argia moesta (Powdered Dancer)Common in the Champlain Valley and scattered in the rest of Vermont. Based on New Hampshire data, it is more common along the Connecticut River than records would indicate. As with A. fumipennis, often, but not exclusively associated with flowing water and usually found where there are rocks to perch on within the water. All three of our Argia species can be found at our lowest elevations. A. moesta will be found farther upstream than A. apicalis, but not as far as A. fumipennis.
